Blue heron on cormorant: Wild of the Week

SHARE Blue heron on cormorant: Wild of the Week

I cross paths with Jim Lukancicoccasionally when fishing, but it is his photography that really connects with me.

A week or so ago, he got a new camera and it has brought forth an outpouring of good stuff. A couple really caught my eye, including this great blue heron trying to steal a fish from a cormorant.

Wild of the Week, a celebration of wildlife around Chicago outdoors, runs on the Sun-Times outdoors page on Sundays when apt.
